The kids table gets revamped with a fresh coat of glossy white paint. Todd creates a crayon holder by inserting a stainless-steel kitchen bowl in the middle of the table. He traces the rim of the bowl on the table and then cuts out the hole using a router. New seating is created for the table when three inexpensive ottomans are covered with three different styles of fabrics.
Play table – $7 and ottomans with slipcovers – $111
fabric: SR Harris
ottomans: Ikea, 18305
paint: Behr's Ultra Pure White
stainless-steel bowl: Hockenberg Restaurant Supply
By using color, these homeowners learn how the hearth can become the center of attention at all their entertaining functions.
